Ride: Bolero ZLX BS-III, two differently-sized motorboats

Group of three: me, Deepak & Tarun

Day-1

We started our journey from Central Kolkata at around 9:30am via Park Circus>Science City>Bantala>>via Basanti Highway>Paglarhat>Caning to Godkhali. we used google navigator, works really fine. had food @Caning and reached Godkhali at around 3:00pm. had some snacks there and parked our vehicle at rented parking of Godkhali, it's really huge parking ground with trustworthy guys.

Took a ferry to Gosaba Market (Fare Re1/-), If you are sure about your swimming, one should try this 1Re ride :P. Then withdraw some money from ATM @Gosaba market, near Hamilton memorial. booked an auto and reached Pakhiralay, Ride was damn bumpy each bone was tested for endurance and finally helped to sleep tight at night :P, awesome experience BTW. This is the last point you can avail even a small market place, (carry your own liquor).

Boarded resort's ferry and reached Sajnekhali tourist lodge of west Bengal tourism. Awesome place to stay @Sunderbans, right in the middle of it. awesome staff n manager, should try wild honey and Delta lobsters.

Day-2

Woke up early, roamed all around the resort, had sumptuous breakfast. Packed all belogings and boarded ferry @7:00am to roam all around Sunderbans. We showed them permission letters at entry of forest area and deposited tolls. the entered the largest mangrove delta of whole planet. The silence and serenity is really out of this world, and that why visiting Sunderbans should be in bucket list of every Indian.

We wandered Burirdabri for various viewpoints and came back directly to Gosaba ferry ghat through different delta channels.at around 8pm in evening. halted for night at Gosaba Market.

Day-3

Crossed the channel from Gosaba to Godkhali, boarded our Bolero and left for Kolkata, reached back Kolkata at around 12:30pm.

To be in central kolkata and visit my dearest places of Park street, Esplanade & many more
we parked our Bolero @rented parking area.
We traveled through an auto-rickshaw from Gosaba ferry ghat to Pakhiralay ferry ghat, hell of a ride, too bumpy it may take your life away. :D
Awesome place right in the middle of Islands, Bindass Dada, He is a highly recommended guy!!
